The Kyocera Mita FS-C8025 is often referred to as the FS-C8025MFP, and for good reason. Its multifunction capabilities are a major highlight, with the ability to print, scan, and copy. Faxing is also available with upgrade options. It can handle color laser printing at up to 25 pages per minute, though the cost per page of Kyocera Mita FS-C8025 printer toner is somewhat high.
Having a robust multifunction device can often lead to confusion, with so many options and functions to control. The touchscreen control panel of the FS-C8025 is designed to alleviate this problem, with a simple wizard-style interface that can walk users through common tasks. It can also be customized so that frequent functions are put front and center.
The limited 600 dpi resolution for printing might turn some buyers away, in favor of 1200 dpi output in competing models. For standard office documents, however, the difference should be negligible. The quick response leads to a first print time of around 10 seconds in monochrome and 12 seconds in color.
Scanning features are becoming more important in the modern office environment, and this unit offers the necessary functionality. Users can send their scanned documents to a thumb drive connected to the front USB port, email them directly, or to a folder on the network.
Paper handling is adequate, starting with a 100-sheet multipurpose tray and a 500-sheet main tray in the base configuration. Users can upgrade the model up to 1,600 sheets when more printing volume is required. A 50-sheet automatic document feeder can handle single or double-sided sheets, and automatic duplexing is support for printing on both sides of the page, which can help reduce paper costs.
With four toners to replace, buyers can expect replacing Kyocera Mita FS-C8025 toner cartridges to be fairly costly. The price of Kyocera Mita FS-C8025 toner compares well to competing models, but there are more affordable offerings on the market. With a yield of only 6,000 pages for each color Kyocera Mita FS-C8025 toner cartridge and 12,000 pages for the black supply, busy office users might be replacing them more often than they would like.
The FS-C8025 doesn't try to be the fastest or the most full-featured in its class. Instead, it offers solid multifunction capabilities at a decent price, with room for future upgradeability. Buyers should be mindful of high supply costs, however.
